NCAA Basketball Bracket 2015

We have been Duke basketball fans since our 2nd son was in college down there many years ago. He kept some statistics for the team so was very much involved. I remember going to a game up at College Park when Duke played Maryland and his taking his statistics into the dressing room at the half with the players and coaches. He and some of his buddies still get down to see a game in Cameron just about every year. Though he and his family live in Columbus, Indiana, he was unable to attend the final four in Indianapolis this year. It’s a long story but involves a daughter in college in Atlanta. We did get to visit with him this evening and was very pleased with the results. I had Duke picked to get to the final against Kentucky but didn’t make a selection for the winner. I missed all 4 of the “play in” winners but had 25 of the 32 in the first round; 10 of 16 in the sweet 16; 5 of 8 in the elite 8; 3 of 4 in the final 4  with only 1 of 2 in the final. It figures out to around 70% which was a passing grade when I was in school. It was a great finish to a good year.

  1. We're watching the Giants again tonight- they won last night so hoping for another win. We got our taxes today - picked up our copy and signed for the automatic deposit for our refunds. Celebrated by having a delicious Costco cherry pie and it is nearly as good as Door County cherries!
